Adventure is out there...

Friends, let me introduce my latest craft:
You may have seen it floating around pinterest. 

Here's the pin that inspired me:



And here we have our version of it:


What you need for this craft:
-scissors
-pins 
-A frame (no glass necessary)
-scrapbook paper for the background. (I selected a sea foam greenish blueish)
-cork-board (you can buy a roll of it for less than $5 at Michael's craft store)


I'm actually a little embarrassed how big Texas turned out. 
I didn't do that on purpose, I swear. 


For the most part, I'm proud of the finished product. 

I have however, become painfully aware that we have yet to visit the midwest of our country. Every time I walk by our adventure map, I swear I hear a little voice say, "you need to go to chicago!!"

...pretty obvious where we've spent most of our time, isn't it friends?
I suppose we're just westerners.

We have had our fair share of adventure, though...


I'm flirting with the idea of making a few smaller versions of this with other countries. Gid and I have been able to travel throughout Canada and Russia. We've got to document, right?! We're also flirting with the idea of going to brazil in the next five years. Time will tell. Maybe I'll need to make a few more of these babies.


In the meantime, I'll just continue to be grateful for the lovely places I've been able to have adventures in.


"Adventure is out there!"

  2. I was going to say you should add a pin on the side that says Russia... :) Unless you're just counting your married adventures, which makes sense...

  3. It would be nice if you were able to put a pin in for Great Falls, Montana.
